FRAXEL DUAL laser
The latest laser technology to restore your skin health
What is Fraxel Dual System?
Fraxel Dual is the most revolutionary laser rejuvenation in recent years. It is a new type of non agressive laser that works by removing aging skin, which, once renovated, has a more hydrated, smooth and healthy aspect. Fraxel Dual is able to reduce wrinkles, remove skin blemishes, remove scars, and remove marks and acne scars. Fraxel laser is also ideal for stretch marks, restoring our lost skin health by external agents such as pollution, sun or the passage of time.
To who and in what zones is it recommended?
Fraxel Dual System is suitable for all ages (from beginning when the first blemishes and marks appear to older ages), for all skin types and can be used in absolutely all areas of the body. Also, can be divided into several sessions without risk, as the device has a camera that detects optimal areas treated and not to act twice on the same area.
How does laser rejuvenation work?
The new Fraxel Dual is powered by two different laser types on the same equipment, one that works in the most superficial skin (laser Thulio – 1927 nm) and another that acts at a deeper level (Erbium laser – 1550 nm), and works as a gradual peeling skin, doing it brighter, smoother and healthier-looking.
With Fraxel Dual we can repair deeper skin damage than with previous fractional laser systems, and also reduces the effects of treatment, resulting in less pain, redness of the area and more comfort.
The revolutionary Fraxel Dual reverse the visible effects of aging obtaining natural and effective results and enabling quick recovery in all areas of the body, even allowing vaginal rejuvenation. This novel technology is based on the generation of millions of tiny microscopic laser spots islands surrounded by healthy tissue, allowing early recovery of the treated areas, without producing injury or scabs. The laser columns stimulate natural healing process that works from the inside to outside, replacing damaged tissue with healthier, smoother and younger skin.
How can this laser treatment prevent skin cancer?
Fraxel Dual is the first laser approved for the treatment of melasma and actinic keratosis (signs before the development of skin cancer caused by sun exposure). In fact, a team of American dermatologists has shown that this laser reduces by almost 90% the number of actinic keratoses, thus preventing the occurrence of skin cancer.
